Life continues...

There hasn't been anything of much importance to write about lately. I went on a mommies only girl trip to Destin with 5 of my mom friends. We had a great time shopping, gabbing, eating, playing games, drinking wine, etc. It was some much needed R&R time. All our husbands survived just fine with our kids back here in KY. There were no SOS calls or any emergencies and it was nice to return to those wonderful big bear hugs from our kids and hubbies. I think all mommies need to escape for a few days every now and then. Its good for our mental health! I took two pictures the whole time I was there and neither were of people, so I don't really have much to share other than this pretty beach picture:

The gulf was REALLY churned up with we were there, so no pretty days like we had while I was there in December. Oh well.....

This one is from one the other girl's cameras - we were at Baytowne Wharf Village in Sandestin. I've taken my girls' picture and our family picture in this same giant beach chair before. Such a cute photo op!

We are expecting snow tonight/tomorrow - they say anywhere from 4-12 inches, which is a HUGE range. I guess we'll know tomorrow! I suppose we'll probably go sledding and make snow angels and all that jazz....I'll try to grab some cute pictures!

Snow Fun

Believe it or not, its pretty rare for us to get snow here in Western KY. No, we aren't in the deep south...or really the "south" at all. Kentucky is just kinda stuck in the middle- not really the mid-west, not really the south.....we are just here. Most of the snow goes just barely to our north during the winter, and we usually get stuck with the icky, no-fun-at-all ICE. However, a few times a month - Dec-March, we can get an inch or two of snow that shuts down our town! Bread and milk disappear from the grocery shelves and schools are closed for days on end if more than an inch of snow falls.

The snow that fell last week was light, fluffy snow...not really that great for snowballs or snowmen...but great for sledding. Dandaddy took the girls sledding on their drive-way...they had a ball! But, when the temp is 12 degrees, the fun just doesn't last long

They also had a little fun in our own yard!

A few of my Christmas favorites...

Because I still have all my Christmas decorations up, I think its okay to still post Christmas pictures, right! That is what happens when you leave 2 days after Christmas for a whole week. I always take my decorations down on New Years Day...but alas, it hasn't been done yet and probably won't get done until this weekend! OH WELL! In the are some of my Christmas favorites.
